triumph phone app is the best way.
In my opinion you will want to upgrade the rear suspension. It is the best modification of the many I have done.
I wonder if any of the aftermarket windscreen makers will consider a "sport" style screen for the Tiger. I'm a fan of the clean air you get with the screen removed. It's just like riding a naked bike, but it looks a little unfinished without the screen on. I was playing around with different angles, and I think a windscreen that is similar to the stock at the bottom, but tapers to just the top of the gauge cluster would be nice. Thoughts?
Get the power bronze bikini screen
I believe there's a "-" button so you can remove an accessory from your configuration.
Cut down your stock screen. Take off a bit at a time, until you get to a height you like. You can paint the backside whatever color you like.
Just put masking tape on the screen where you're going to make your cuts. Use a jigsaw with the finest tooth count you can find. Finish the edges with 1000 grit sandpaper. I've cut down a few screens like this.

Think he means the OEM explorer seat.
I've had my bike since Easter 2011.
My bike has now been in the workshop for one month, waiting on a replacement gear selector shaft which I have apparently bent by changing gear too hard, thus not covered under warranty. Any one know how its possible to bend a gear selector shaft? Although just a hunch I suspect its possibly related to the gear return spring recall.
My front brake discs needed replacing after 30,000km, BEFORE the brake pads needed replacing. Rejected warranty claim because brake discs are considered consumables. Definite manufacturing deficiency.
If anyone is looking to buy a Triumph I would advise against it, despite the fact that it is a fantastic bike. After sales support is lacking. This is a Triumph issue and not a dealer issue. Triumph don't have an adequate supply chain in effect despite the bike having been out for 2 years now. Every part I've orderred from my dealer has taken 3+ weeks to arrive if not immediately in stock.
Sorry to hear that as my view on Triumph is the opposite. I know plenty of people who had discs replaced on warranty here in the UK.
However, in your shoes I would write a letter (remember those) direct to Triumph in England. They may not know what goes on in your country (I'm assuming your're in the US as your profile on here is incomplete).
A good warranty experience starts with a good dealer...
I think he may be Canadian eh! as he talks of KM not, miles.
Good luck to the OP...
Guess again, I'm actually English in Australia, so very good at complaining by birth and already have contacted Triumph both Triumph Oz and Uk direct.
My primary concern right now is to get my bike back. It is my only vehicle. So much for putting my faith in Triumph.
All that Triumph Australia can do is provide updates on the location of the parts, which should be here this week.
I'll make sure I post photos and details of the gear selector shaft failure once I get hold of it. I'm a professional engineer and in my opinion internal engine failure is impossible with normal use. The gear lever would brake before internal failure!
No offense but, failures are always possible. Hope you get your rig back soon. I agree Triumph seems to be lacking in parts support from what I read but, I've had acceptable results ordering from Bike Bandit even on parts I thought might be very slow to get - always within two weeks.
I agree, failures are possible, which is why warranties exist and why hopefully this will be covered!
Lack of parts supply has also extended to wheel bearings, seals and brake pads.
If only Triumph would list the commercial bearing sizes like KTM do so that I could get hold of them locally before taking them out.
FWIW, I stumbled across a video someone posted of their triumph making the same nose. Though theirs appears to do it even after warm up. They fixed it with a manual CCT. So yes, as others posted my CCT has an issue and it's probably the spring clip thing being out of place. I'll look at it this weekend once I've got my WR250R back together.
what was wrong with your brake calipers?
Just stumbled across this one...
